Advanced Placement (AP) is the term used to describe high school classes that are taught at a college level. At the end of the year, students have the option to take AP tests in a number of subjects. If they achieve above a certain score (depending on the college) they may receive college credit for the class.

The scores are on a 5 point scale, with 5 being the best.

The Advanced Placement Program, commonly known as Advanced Placement, or AP, is a United States program that offers high school students the opportunity to receive university credit for their work during high school.
The not-for-profit College Board, which has run the program since 1955, develops and maintains courses in various subject areas, supports those who teach the courses, supports universities as they define their policies related to AP grades, and develops and coordinates the administration of annual AP examinations.
The first of these was announced several months later: an Advanced Placement exam in "Italian Language and Culture" is the first to be announced, and will be the first exam to be offered in 2006.
